Playing around with a new pedal and some tremolo.

5/29/15: messed with the mix and EQ'd the song



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like the guitar riff at the beginning and the sort of oom-pah sort of beat it has. Sometimes, the chords clash a bit. This is a very distorted and ominous sound you have here, especially with the bass at 1:15. I liked the ending, and it also doesn't make that bad of a loop. I think that, stylistically speaking, you took some risks with this piece (especially with the atonality), but it still felt a little minimalistic. You don't really have any predominant melodies or structural relief in this piece. I like what you did with the drums, though. At the same time, I'm not sure how I feel about the way the guitar sort of pulses back and forth in the mix - maybe you could get rid of some more of those treble tones so it doesn't come across as harsh-sounding? Besides that, though, the mixing and mastering is rather good; I can hear everything clearly throughout. I still wanted to see you go more of somewhere with this piece, maybe building off of the melodic riff you had at the very beginning. It seems like it would be more fitting as background music than as a stand-alone piece. Still, this is creative and interesting work and I commend you for it. Keep at it, IndustryStandard. ;)

Thanks for the advice! I'm glad to hear that the mixing/mastering came out well because that's something I'm just getting the hang of right now so it's good to know I'm on the right track. I probably won't do any more work on this song, at least not anytime soon, but all your points are definitely good things to keep in mind for future pieces for sure. i have a habit of writing one riff and then just rolling with that but it's about time i started expanding on that i think. Also, though, you said this would work as a background piece better than a stand alone song, and that's pretty much exactly my goal for this song - and most of my music, at least as far as IndustryStandard is concerned. I want to make video game music. But anyway, good advice and thanks for the review!

Interesting sound. Has kind of a goofy tone. It has enough variety for a song of this length in my eyes. I like all of the sounds you used here, to the piano, the plucky sound, and especially the guitar adds a lot here. The main problem I have with the song is the mix. Trying EQing the frequencies on the sounds so they don't clash as much. It will get rid of a lot of the muddiness

Mixing is the bane of my existence right now, but i totally agree with you. In fairness, i didn't spend a whole lot of time on the mix so the iffy quality is partly due to my own laziness, but mixing is also something I just haven't quite gotten the hang of yet as that seems to be something that pops up in most of the reviews i get.

Glad to know the music itself is worth listening to though, This'll definitely be something i rework and remix. Thanks for the input!
